    Re: Arificial Horizons and Tea

    Thanks Kieran. Since tea works with stars, perhaps it will also work with the
    daytime moon.
    
    I checked again, and the cold tea still recovers from ripples better than
    water. For me this is not much of an advantage, since I made an artificial
    horizon that that's light, stows well, sets up quickly, and works fine with water in
    any sort of gale I'd care to be out in. But if I can get stars and the
    daytime moon in tea, that IS an advantage. Hope to try it soon.
    
    Also if, in fairly still air, I can do without the wind shield it will be
    much easier to get altitudes of different bodies.
